Policy statement

The Minister may issue a Notice of Intention to Revoke to a registered charity that ceases to comply with the requirements of the Income Tax Act.

A registered charity can also apply in writing to have its registration revoked, for example, when it is winding up its operations (voluntary revocation).

Under the Charities Registration (Security Information) Act, if a registered charity is subject to a certificate that is determined to be reasonable, the registration of the charity is revoked as of the making of that determination.
